I have been on orientation for three months on a medical surgical telemetry floor. Due to a huge funding issue, my hospital has extended the orientation for two weeks and has not told us when or where or what unit we will be placed.
I'm so anxious about losing a job I never really had already! But the main point of this topic is...
I am so so scared of being on my own.
I'm so terrified that I will harm a patient or miss something or God forbid kill someone it's causing me to have anxiety attacks. I can hardly think straight anymore because I'm constantly worrying if what I'm doing is right or wrong. My preceptors are saying that I'm doing really well but for some reason I'm still scared.
Any advice or experience to share? I'd really appreciate it.
